A Withlacoochee River Electric Cooperative employee sustained minor injuries Wednesday when his company pickup truck overturned at Linden and Coronado drives about 3 p.m., authorities say. Stuart Smeltzer's truck flipped when he tried to avoid a car running a stop sign, company spokesman Ernie Holzhauer said. The other driver, whose name was not immediately available, was cited by the Florida Highway Patrol and also sustained minor injuries. Smeltzer was treated at and released from HCA Oak Hill Hospital.
